, that's how secretary of state john kerry described president obama's first presidential visit to israel. the white house had set expectations low, but is there was one surprise, when the president persuaded israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu to apologize to turkey over mistakes that led to the death of activists on a flotilla bound for gaza. let me bring in congressman elliott angle. good to see you. >> thank you. >> congressman mike rogers had a very different take than john kerry about the president's trip. let me play it for you. >> i thought the trip was a disappointment for us. i think the president squandered great opportunity to show leadership and push them in a place where they could get an agreement out of a meeting, didn't get it, got a speech, get to some agreement on the path forward on syria, didn't get that. >> so from your perspective, congressman, a disappointment, a success? somewhere in between? >> it was a great success. i was with the president. i flew with him on air force one, traveled with him. he was treated like a rock star in israel. >> how interesting,
rivers, abc news, rome. >> new at 11:00, president obama is set to name a new secretary of labor. a white house source says thomas perez of the justice department will be nominated to head the labor department. he has strong support from latino and labor groups and he could run into problems from republicans. now a follow-up to a story we first brought you last night at 11:00. the meat and poultry industry is pushing back against those hard to watch videos of animal cruelty. it is videos like these that the new legislation appears to want to restrict. a bill sponsored by the cattle man's association would require anyone collecting evidence of abuse to turn it over to authorities within 48 hours. they say abuse should be stopped as soon as possible rather than waiting until someone makes a video. critics contend that the industry should want to stop the cruelty rather than the documenting of it. >>> a mystery in southern california has animals baffled. the starving sea lion pups are washing up on beaches more and more each week and no one is sure why. clayton sandal explains many are worki
, education, housing. >> obama care. >> health care is a huge one, uh-huh. >> okay. any other issues? gene, i'm trying to get you to help my party here. what is another issue some what is another issue we need to work on? >> here is how your party can appeal to african-americans. your party, first of all, can go there, number one. >> a great start. by the way, gene, it is an amazing thing. you know what happens when you do that i know this will drive my many critics crazy. probably 3% of the african-american vote my first election. i spent a lot of time the next two years for a lot of different reasons. engage in the community. i got 50% of the vote my second. my re-election. >> richard nixon -- >> 98% of, you know, work is just showing up. >> you show up. it makes a difference. >> it's not that long ago, republicans could get a third or more of the african-american vote. richard nixon did. so it can be done. there is an appeal. but, i think, republicans to have to formulate their message in a way that connects with and makes sense to not just african-american communities, but latino and asia
, the fact of the matter is, obama has been to this -- about $6 trillion during his watch and so have the republicans in the house. maybe not the first two years but the rest. what have they done? i look at my stumps that's what they're supposed to look at -- look at my constitution. all tax bills come out of the house of representatives. all of them. then they say they don't have any power? when boehner announces we're not going to shut down the government, when it was shut down for three weeks when newt gingrich was trying to control bill clinton and his spending, and he is giving up his card. when boehner says we don't have an immediate dead crisis he is giving up his cards. he doesn't want to actually do something about this but likes being speaker. >> neil: they're looking at the next -- the end of this month we're facing yet another potential crisis. they're going to argue that the government could shut down. and this is their attempt to say, we won't brick -- bring it to that pranksmanship because we don't want it on our door step we caused it. but it's going to boomerang on th
. >>> they are trying to keep the government funded through the end of the september. the measure will go to the house where it is expected to pass and then on to president barack obama and they are reaching a deadline to pass that spending bill or face a government shut down. >>> we want to check in with sal for the commute, it is after 6:00 now. >> yes, and i want to show you something because of a crash on 880 westbound and richmond. let's go to the toll plaza here. it is lighter than usual and although there are certainly plenty of people on the road but i think they are all stick on 880 but if you are driving on the bay bridge, it looks good and the actual freeway system looks good as well. i want to show you 80 westbound and this crash here as we remove the indicater, you can see the traffic between panola and richmond is very, very slow and unfortunately that is why people are not at the bay bridge yet. there was an injury crash but they are waiting on a tow truck to get that badly damaged vehicle out of the lanes. let's go to steve. >>> there are some breaks in the clouds from napa to san jose
guess i was surprised when obama cut the deal to create this, acting people in the white house if it would impact the women, infants and children program, the wic program they said well we don't think it's going to happen. i think the impact will be worse on low income americans and anything that shafts low income americans will happen, unfortunately. because it's pointless, mindless and counterproductive does not mean that they're not going to become u.s. law. >> john: they really thought that lucy would not pull the football away from charlie brown this time and now we're paying the price. you're battling hunger. how can the sequestration hurt your program. >> women who are pregnant, low income family with nutritional supplements prevented half a million babies from dying at birth. the sequestration is cutting 700,000 pregnant women and infants off the wic program. it's literally taking milk out of the mouths of hungry infants. now this program has prevented half a million babies from dying at birth. so it's ironic to me that most of the people who support these cuts claim t
president obama submits his spending blueprint on april 8. with their work done, house members leave town today for a two week recess. while senators will remain in a marathon session until a vote on their own plan to fund the government. judy woodruff takes it from there. >> woodruff: for what's happening behind-the-scenes, we turn to todd zwillich, washington correspondent for "the takeaway" on public radio international. welcome back to the newshour. >> good to be with you, judy. >> woodruff: first this vote to keep the government funded by the end of the fiscal year, both the house and senate passed this. does this mean democrats and republicans finally see eye to eye on something? >> well, it means that they see eye to eye on not having another showdown right now. both sides have agreed that they don't want to have a big battle over a government shutdown and in media attention and cable news and the countdown clocks, both sides have decided that's not in their interest now. i wish i could tell you they see eye to eye on fiscal matters, that's just not true. they decided to go to thei

from now, president obama leaves for his first trip to israel since moving in to the white house. in major announcements planned, but chemical weapons and iran's nuclear program are sure to be among the major issues discussed when he meets mideast leaders including taking a look at the list, you have netanyahu, mahmoud abbas, and king abdullah. jessica yellin is live in jerusal jerusalem. so why now? >> reporter: it's an excellent question and one a lot of people are asking. every visit to jerusalem by a u.s. president is seen as rich in symbolism and strategic significant. symbolically the president's visit makes sense. you could say his first visit overseas in his first term was to give a speech in cairo to the arab world. now he can say his first overseas visit, the second term, he gives a speech in israel to the jewish world and any sensitivities he irritated the first time around he will have addressed now. but strategically, many people here in israel are confused by the timing of this visit. other american presidents have come to israel at a time when, for example, peace n

, and the republican house would have to agree. now, the republican house is not going to allow them to raise taxes on the american people, and that's how you force a conversation about reform. the reason why there's been no reform during the obama years, no entitlement reform, no welfare reform, is that they just raise taxes and spend more money. but when you stop them from having the ability to raise taxes, then they have to reform government to decide how to allocate resources and how to prioritize. that's the beginning of getting reform. and you're quite right that republicans need to be better at walking through with everybody why they're doing things, what they're up to and speaking directly to people, because you can't always expect cbs to articulate the republican position as accurately as we might like. >> host: smiley 22 writes in on twitter: with the trillion dollars of spending cuts in the last three years, when will we see the economy take off, mr. norquist? >> guest: okay. we haven't had a trillion dollar in spending cuts what we had was an agreement by the president of the united sta
that would change my calculus said president obama in 2012. we will get reaction from the white house on this that will come at about ten: 30 as we get a closer look what is going on in syria. let's look at some of the known chemical weapons capabilities. it is estimated that sir was ha several tons of must -- mustard gas and nerve agents. they have 600 warheads capable of delivering those chemical agents. syria has an estimated 50 sites associated with their chemical weapons program. this is obviously big news. as the president said in the past this could change the calculus of this situation, bill. bill: martha, this is a war that has gone on for two years. this is the region we're looking at. turkey up to the north and west, israel to the south and jordan. you have the long shared border with the country of iraq to syria's east. capital city of damascus. what we believe to be the story of the moment, well north of damascus, fleer the town of a help bow -- aleppo. that is the largest town in northern syria. more than two million people call aleppo home. it was in this region the inc
.s. engagement. the white house pentagon officials closely monitoring these developments. president obama's chief of staff dennis mcdonough told jake tapper they take the use of chemical weapons, quote, very seriously. >> we are going to be very clear to the syrian regime, as we have been throughout, and to all the syrian supporters throughout the world, and then obviously to our partners in the region, that if this is substantiated obviously it does suggest that the president's just said that this is a game changer and we'll act accordingly. >> game changer. so does that mean the united states would take some kind of military action? chris lawrence live at the pentagon for us. good morning, chris. >> good morning, christine. u.s. officials are telling us that they have seen the regime moving the chemical weapons away from some of the urban fighting areas over the last month or two. and the pentagon has been updating its military options so that if president obama requests them, they're ready to go. these sources are telling us that the u.s. has plenty of firepower in the area, including fighter

will and president obama in the white house will be the focus, between the white house and the speaker, but the fact is the american people have a lot to lose in that equation. the equities you must weigh in order to make further cuts on year. $1.60 trillion last now what they are proposing in the budget or remains to be seen how that translates into a preparations, and on top of that more cuts, is a blueprint not just for mediocrity, but a road to poverty for many people in our country, and not worthy of the greatness of our country. real fast. that theis talk about house leaders want to attach entitlement reform. they want to cut social security, medicare to balance the budget. if hed boehner earlier wanted to use that as leverage, and he said there is some leverage there. are you worried at all that it could put you in a hard place? >> they want to use medicare and medicaid and social security to reduce the deficit? >> they want entitlement reform. this would be in exchange for the deficit reduction. >> you realize how harmful this would be. f we are to have [indiscernible] in order to sustain so
counterpart. the white house turned down the request to meet with obama, and aides were claiming that a scheduling conflict with the scheduling. and the president shared a good old laugh with david letterman during the visit. and when the president first set foot in the oval office, remember, he began apologizing to the world for america, to israel's detriment. >> america, like every other nation has made mistakes and has its flaws. in america, there's a failure to appreciate europe's leading role in the world. instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where americans showed arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive. >> 9/11 was an enormous trauma to our country. the fear and anger that it provoked was understandable, but in some cases, it led us to act contrary to our traditions and our ideals. we're taking concrete actions to change course. i am-- i have unequivocally the torture-- and guantanamo bay closed. >> and at times we thought to dictate our terms. >> sean: just pathetic and the bad judg
obama's role in making that happen. >> warner: judy, the white house, the administration has been working for over two years to try to heel this rift, but it became important as the syria conflict got more serious in the neighborhood, because in the absence of going in in thely, the president is trying to all the neighbors as we know in the region to assist with refÑg es, to assist with figuring out where the chemical weapons are, to try to figure out which islamist forces might be gaining ground among the rebel forces. it's very complicated. and to have two of america's three staunchest, best, sort of security and intelligence allies in the region not speaking has been a huge, huge problem. so, the president-- john kerry, when he went to archg raon his maten trip as secretary of state, talkedded to erdjuan, and the president when he got here at his very first meeting with netanyahied with brought it up, and has been working it we're told each time they met. so it was set up that they went to the airport. they had a trailer set up, and netanyahi and obama went in and the call was
at all between the senate and house plan? >> the major difference is that, obama and most of the country that voted for him really thinks that a time of recession that we're coming out of it that we should be creating jobs and not laying off people just with cuts. that is the difference. the major difference between the senate and the house. republicans say no taxes, no money, no investment. well, that's absolutely ridiculous. in order to get people back to work and having disposable income, you've got to invest in education, the infrastructure, the bridges and the tunnels. there's no money in the republican, because they say that we're taking care of revenues. where the heck that is in the constitution that you can't raise revenues, i don't know. but it's not right. >> i want to switch gears and talk to you about guns a bit. we just talked about it with our last group of folks. 85% of folks in this country when you ask about background checks they say they support the idea. background checks aren't a done deal. looks like the assault weapons ban is not going to happen. ban on high capac
